Can We Help? Community Finder

Community Assistance Grants

The Community Assistance Grants Scheme supports community groups who create opportunities for Mandurah residents to participate in the community and give them greater access to essential services. This is done through two funding streams.


Community Association Fund

This fund aims to encourage community participation and develop the skills of community based organisations.

The Community Association fund has two grants available per round:
(a) One-off grants for community projects or events (Grants up to $1000):
(b) Co-contribution grants (Grants up to $500):

There are two funding rounds for the Community Association Fund each financial year; February and July.


Partnership Fund

This fund aims to assist community organisations to provide increased community access to essential programs and services over a three year period. 


Applying for a Grant 

All applications and reporting need to be made using our online grants system. Go to Mandurah Smartygrants to create an online login and complete your application.

You can commence a grant application once the round is open.

Grant applications will only be accepted online and only while the funding round is open.

Please read the Guidelines for each funding stream carefully prior to applying. This will give you an easy to read guide of where to start and how the process works.

Please contact a Community Development Officer to discuss your project idea on 9550 3850 or email
